Question: John Lloyd Wright, son of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, invented which popular wooden toy?

Answer: In 1916, John Lloyd Wright created a toy construction set that consisted of notched pieces of wood that children could stack to build log cabins, forts, and other rustic buildings. Two years later, Wright received a patent for his “toy-cabin construction.” Unhappy with the name, Wright took inspiration from Abraham Lincoln and called his new toy Lincoln Logs. The original toy came with instructions on how to build Lincoln’s Kentucky boyhood home.
